Dad’s new wife was gorgeous. How he could have met and married someone like that shocked.
I hadn’t expected her to look so good. I assumed some mousy thing I could glare at then stalk off. But when I saw the beauty queen I didn’t know what to do or say or think.
Having planned how I’d react to the Mouse, I just followed the script and got to my room and slammed the door.
A woman like that Sherry would steal my father. He would fall in love with her and wouldn’t remember my name. If I was drowning and screamed for him and that Sherry asked for a glass of water, he’d get her the glass of water first!
